>> in danger of repeating myself >> more green


yes I fully realise that you have seen picture of theses grasses that I love so much. though this one was taken today, about half an hour.
so I kind of apologise but in the long enjoyment they have given me I have started to feel guilty as I don't actually know what type of grass or plant they actually are so I wanted to put the picture up.
firstly because I like it, and secondly I would really like to know what it is, so I would be grateful if any proper gardeners or those with horticultural knowledge could tell me by adding a comment to this post I would be very grateful.
especially as it is the week of the chelsea flower show in the UK.

Mum did tell me what they are called, I'll ask her again and see if I can remember xx

they have red/orange flowers in autumn that are not that attractive, if that is any help.

It wasn't what mum thought it was.

looks like it might be, but it never seems to flower that much. perhaps I only look at it when it is green.
I still must have a flower phobia?
